Wynton Marsalis’ 1985 release, Black Codes from the Underground is the featured work for the next Jazz Lunch on December 3, 2014, at noon at the Square Room in Market Square, downtown Knoxville.
The album featured Marsalis’ then working band: saxophonist Branford Marsalis, pianist Kenny Kirkland, bassist Charnett Moffett and drummer Jeff ‘Tain’ Watts. Marsalis’ original compositions for this date have proven to be some of his most influential works. Pianist Andrew LaPrise has assembled a cast of excellent young musicians to recreate this entire album, beginning to end.
Admission to the concert is $15 and includes a lunch buffet served up by Café 4. Tickets are available online at http://www.knoxjazz.org or by visiting Café 4 in
person prior to the show.
